Many flexible packaging veterans say that one product propelled the flexible packaging industry to the forefront of packaging innovations: the CapriSun pouch. As a child of the 80s, I was the industry’s target marketing group.

Thank goodness the flexible packaging industry is always improving, including making updates to the CapriSun pouch’s punch hole; I don’t think I could ever open the 1980s version of that hole-punch without spilling juice all over my fourth grader desk.

Improvements are vital in business – resting on your laurels only ensures you’ll become obsolete. Opportunities abound when improvements can be made.

That’s whyFlexible Packaging magazine has partnered with sister ePublicationPackaging Strategiesas host to an all-important industry event called the Global Pouch Forum (GPF). Involvement in events like the GPF is one key to growing and advancing as a business and an industry, in my humble opinion.

The Global Pouch Forum calls on those involved in the bag/pouch niche to listen to and discuss case studies, best practices and future outlooks.

Understanding where you can make improvements and how is so important in business: This issue can help you do both.
